New Low on Ireland's Highest:

22nd November 2014
Horrified today while guiding a group from the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland to witness the result of a total act of vandalism on Corrán Tuathail with the summit cross after being cut down. An iconic cross on an iconic peak now lying where it fell. It beggers belief how no matter what ones personal attitude to this cross could then bring them to sinking to this unprecedented low and acting in such a shocking way. A sad day for sure. 

Gardaí have been notified and and investigation is being conducted.

MacGillycuddy's Reeks Mountain Access Forum have stated that they will be organising the re-erection of the cross.

We at KerryClimbing.ie along with our very good friends in Kerry Outdoor Sports
are thrilled to be bringing the eagerly anticipated and much hyped about climbing documentary film - "VALLEY UPRISING" to Killarney. 





 
The Reel Rock Film Tour is one of the world’s fastest growing short film festivals and is ready to once again thrill audiences this autumn with events across Ireland and the U.K.
This year’s Reel Rock Tour showcases the feature length documentary - VALLEY UPRISING - which will treat adventure loving audiences to a rare trip back in time to experience 60 years of climbing history, epic rivalry, adventure and rebellion.
 
Vividly brought to life on the big screen through digitally animated-archival photography, spectacular movie footage from today and the past as well as interviews with climbing legends, VALLEY UPRISING tells the story of the bold men and women that broke with convention and redefined the limits of human possibility in California’s Yosemite National Park.


 
 
WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
The story of Yosemite as recorded in the history books, captured on film and spoken by the campfire can be divided into three discrete but interlocking generations.
